Summary
"Walls are going up. Nationalism and identity politics are on the rise once more. Tens of thousands of miles of fences and barriers have been erected in the past decade, and they are redefining our political landscape. There are many reasons why we erect walls: we are divided by wealth, race, religion, and politics. In Europe the ruptures of the past decade threaten not only European unity but, in some countries, liberal democracy itself. In China, the Party's need to contain the divisions wrought by capitalism will define the nation's future. In the United States the rationale for the Mexican border wall taps into the fear that the US will no longer be a white majority country in the course of this century. Covering China, America, Israel and Palestine, the Middle East, the Indian Subcontinent, Africa, Europe, and the UK, bestselling author Tim Marshall presents a timely and unflinching analysis of the fault lines that will shape our world for years to come."--
